Carrick pens new United deal

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has signed a new four-year contract at Old Trafford as the club prepare for the Champions League final on Wednesday.

Carrick, 26, has become a fixture in the side this season, making 48 appearances as they retained the Premier League title.

Now he is preparing to face Chelsea in Moscow and manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: 'I am delighted Michael has signed a new contract.

'Michael has been outstanding since joining us from Tottenham and it is great to know he will be a part of this squad for many years to come.'

Carrick joined United from Tottenham two years ago for £14million and follows Rio Ferdinand this week in pledging his long-term future to the club.

Ferdinand signed a new five-year deal and is being backed as an England captain in waiting.

Carrick is pleased to have the matter finally sorted out before the showdown in Russia.

He said: 'Manchester United is a fantastic club and it is a pleasure to be part of this great squad. I believe this team will be together for many years to come.

'To win back-to-back titles in my first two seasons at the club is a dream come true.'

It was last month that Ferguson said new deals had been agreed with Carrick, Ferdinand and Wes Brown.

Carrick emphasised then there was nowhere else he would rather be than at Old Trafford.

'This is the time you want to be playing when big games pop around and the trophies are being handed out,' he said. 'Manchester United is the best club. It is about the way we play and the size of the club - the whole set-up really.

'When you get here, you see how the club runs and what it is all about. To have the pleasure to play here is amazing.'
